I won't say that the day was perfect, because it wasn't. But we were surrounded by family and friends, just as we are now. I think that we have both made an effort to include those we love in our lives, and as I have said before, I am so happy that we have so many people around us who care about us, and who now care about our little ones.
So for Date #2 since our boys were born, we went to Portsmouth, New Hampshire and had dinner at a place called Brazo. We had a very friendly waiter and some excellent food. I started off with a mojito, my first since getting pregnant! It was delicious, but I drank it realllly slowly while eating so that I wouldn't get drunk. We shared tapas and a fish taco to start, then I had an organic salmon with tomato and corn salsa, and Eric had Brazilian pulled pork and black beans. He ate maybe half his entree and I ate ALL of mine. After dinner, I felt full for maybe the 2nd time since the babies were born. I swear, breastfeeding makes me a bottomless pit!
As of the last time I weighed myself, I am only up 4 pounds from my pre-pregnancy weight. Maybe half of that is in my boobs! I still don't have the same totally flat stomach I had before, but I am hoping to go back to the gym soon so that I can start toning my muscles up. They have a babysitting room at the gym, so I can leave the babies there while I exercise. I kind of dislike some aspects of exercising, but I always feel better after a workout, so I am looking forward to that.
I still have a lot more to say about our trip to Maine and all the family we saw there. There was a constant stream of visitors while we were there! For now, though, the babies are both asleep and I need to take care of myself (take a shower) while I can.
